Campaign: Fixers Road Savvy Campaign

A three second distraction on the road is all it takes to change someone’s life.

 

My knowledge of road safety has come from my work on campaigns and in workshops. It has made me understand that nobody is invincible. 

 

I have worked with Hackney Council on a road safety campaign called, ‘Concrete Dreams,’ to engage with young people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds.

 

I feature in the film which is used in schools, and also provide peer support at workshops.  

September 2013

I attended the Fixers Road Savvy Forum in London.

 

It brought together Fixers, politicians, road safety experts and representatives from the emergency services.

 

Transport Minister Stephen Hammond and former footballer and TV presenter Gary Lineker were among those there.

 

The day was split into two sessions. In the morning I took part in a workshop, discussing the key road safety issues facing young people today.

 

In the afternoon, a forum was held where politicians and road safety professionals were given the chance to put questions to a panel of Fixers.

 

Conclusions from the event are going to be presented to the Department for Transport in a ‘Fixers Green Paper’ as a contribution to the Government’s forthcoming Road Safety Green Paper.

 

Following my attendance at the Road Savvy Forum I was featured in the Romford Recorder and the Yellow Advertiser. You can read the articles by clicking on the names above.

 

I was also featured on ITV News London, you can click here to watch the full broadcast item.
